Rated 1 out of 5 by outdorz BEWARE---Not the color pictured.
I ordered a package of 2 pr of these socks in green to match a green T shirt. It really irks me when they arrive there is one pair of green and one pair of grey. Now I have to go to the hassle of returning the pair I don't want.
LLBEAN-do you read these reviews, what is your explanation?

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScottFamilyFour Great for running
Tried a lot of running socks and being slightly larger than most pavement pounders (205lbs) I look for cushion over weight/thin. These have been perfect for me.
They have a lot of material in the toe pad and the heel, so they take up space in those areas, so be aware if your shoes are snug. But the rest of the construction is very minimalist. I wear an 11.5 running and 10.5 street shoe and size large were just right. Also, the band hits right at the ankle, so they won't slip down your heel like the "no show" style alternatives. So far, super stoked, most likely ordering another set soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DuhProf ok but not lightweight
these may be good socks, but they are not lightweight. They are heaver than advertised and allow little extra moving room in running shoes.
Soft, yes, but too much material for hotter weather or shoes without ample space.
If you buy these make sure your running shoes are 1/2 size larger than usual.

These are really comfortable socks, plus the bright colors are a great safety feature. Although my shoe size is 11, the X L fit me perfectly. I plan on ordering a few more pair. If you don't care for the colored, plain are also available for a little less money. Try a pack or two, I don't think you'll be sorry.
